TBM in the media
Bert van Wee in diverse media over gratis OV
Helpt gratis openbaar vervoer bij het oplossen van files? "Nee", zegt Bert van Wee, hoogleraar Transportbeleid aan de TU Delft. "Het enige wat je doet is ervoor zorgen dat mensen die tóch al met het OV reizen dat nog vaker en nog verder gaan doen.
Virginia Dignum in De Ingenieur over gedragscode voor robots
In december vorig jaar presenteerde De Ingenieur technische toepassingen die in 2018 zouden doorbreken. Wat is er van terechtgekomen en zijn ze voorbodes van een nieuwe trend? Een gedragscode voor robots is nog niet van de grond gekomen, 'Maar', zegt Virginia Dignum van de TU Delft: 'Steeds meer landen hebben een eigen AI-strategie, dat helpt om bepaalde standaarden te handhaven'.

How to guarantee public values in crowd-based innovations?
In today’s society, citizens are increasingly taking on a new role relative to the government and business community in the supply of products and services such as energy and transport. Examples include initiatives such as neighbours who join forces to purchase wind turbines, house swaps via Airbnb and transport using Uber. This can present challenges for the existing public structures, creating tension between the public sector and these initiatives.
How games can solve problems in the transport sector
The idea of gaming may make you think of young people spending all day playing on their tablets. However, TU Delft researchers are also involved in gaming, but in this case for science purposes. The TU Delft GameLab works with business and industry on the development of both analogue and digital serious games in order to make complex issues manageable and find solutions for processes in which numerous players with different interests collaborate.
Creating a tolerant society with games and classical music
Openness and tolerance are essential public values in our democratic society. Being prepared to actively listen to each other is a fundamental aspect of an inclusive and sustainable society. But whether we are all such good listeners is questionable; in fact we often overestimate our ability to truly listen to other people and therefore understand them.
Bridging the gap between new technology and safety & responsibility of self-driving cars
Self-driving cars are no longer science-fiction. Although many benefits are expected of automated driving systems (ADS), such as reducing congestion and less crashes, ethical concerns also arise.
Improving the efficiency of Customs inspections in the logistics supply chain
In the years ahead, Customs at Schiphol airport and the Port of Rotterdam are set to have a lot of work on their hands. In the next five years, the huge growth in e-commerce and the imminent Brexit will lead to an increase from 160 million to 500 million in the number of Customs declarations passing through these major logistics hubs of Europe. This massive increase calls for smart ways of working in order to guarantee efficient risk analysis and cut costs in processing Customs import declarations.
Engineering Social Technologies for a Responsible Digital Future
This research initiative aims at strengthening complexity science for a better understanding of socio-technical-environmental systems and to prepare for the challenges of today’s globalized and hyper-connected world. The program is committed to the idea that we need to respond to the novel, data-driven construction of the social world with an operational framework that enables sustainable new modes of social, moral, legal and political thinking.
